With the Perky-Pet® Handheld & Tabletop Hummingbird Feeder you can enjoy feeding your beautiful feathered friends from your hands. When not hand feeding, place the feeder on a tabletop or other flat surface. The pop-off lid and shallow dish design allow for easy filling and cleaning. While you enjoy time saved from maintaining it, your hummingbirds won’t be able to resist the feeder’s lifelike, hollyhock-inspired flowers. They are bright, soft and flexible just like the flowers they flock to in nature! The flowers' tapered design also acts as a natural bee guard to keep bees out.
Feed From Your Hand
If you’ve always wanted to watch your hummingbirds from a closer angle, this feeder is just the ticket. With the Perky-Pet® Handheld & Tabletop Hummingbird Feeder you can enjoy feeding hummingbirds right from your hand! The lightweight feeder fits comfortably in your palm so you won’t fatigue, making it easier to keep the feeder steady while your feathered friends dine.
Place on a Table
When you’re not hand feeding your feathered friends, the feeder can be placed on a tabletop or other flat surface so hummingbirds can continue using it on their own! This feature is also key in letting hummingbirds get used to the feeder. Plus, the 2 oz capacity provides a large enough nectar supply so they can enjoy feeding from it for some time after you’ve set it down.
Feeding Ports Inspired by Nature
Hummingbirds are accustomed to drinking nectar from flowers. That’s why we’ve developed this feeder with soft, flexible feeding ports inspired by the hollyhock flower to offer a more natural look and feel. The vibrant color and realistic flower shape are perfect for attracting hummers, while the three ports ensure there’s enough room for multiple birds to dine from your hand simultaneously.
Naturally Keeps Out Bees
With this feeder, there’s no need for an added bee guard. The specially designed feeding ports feature a tapered “stem” that prevents bees from getting into the nectar, while hummingbirds will have no trouble at all! It’s a natural way of keeping out pesky bees without adding extra parts for you to clean.
Easy to Clean & Fill
Hummingbirds prefer to visit fresh, clean feeding stations. For your convenience, the shallow, dish-style feeder is incredibly easy to fill and clean. Just pop off the lid! The flowers can be removed as well to access all the nooks and crannies. Remember to clean your feeder every few days to prevent mildew buildup; clean more often in hot weather.
